You read that right! Eaman Park Pool is Salisbury’s longest running community swim club. For 65 years we have been welcoming families and their friends to this community run pool club. And in 2020 we even welcomed their 4-legged children during our end-of-season Doggie Dip. From splashing in the shallow end to competing in Shark and Minnows, watching our pool families grow is a joy beyond compare. Coming up on Saturday, May 22, 2021 we are celebrating this momentous occasion with a poolside concert. From 5:00-6:00pm members and their guests will enjoy live music from local talent Courtney Puckett. Courtney is a well versed musician who has been soothing crowds with her sultry vocals and jazzy guitar style all over NC. After her set, we’ll kick things into high gear with Old Time, Neo Folk Trio Mama Tried. This popular loca band is based here in Salisbury, NC and features the talents of Emily Soward – Guitar and Vox, Kent Smith – Percussionist Extraordinaire, and Duke Wicker – Bass.
The Eaman Park Pool Board is providing refreshments, along with a selection of wine and craft beers from New Sarum Brewing Co. Members will also have the opportunity to view a slide show that highlights many of our amazing pool families over the years and to meet our 2021 Lifeguard Team.
As we celebrate this amazing accomplishment, we hope to also reflect on the positive impact that our pool has had on our community and in the lives of our children and families. From riding bikes to the pool on a hot summer day, to celebrating the end of school with a dive into the deep end, EPP is cherished by so many. We have watched babies grow up into young adults ready to change the world, welcomed them to join our lifeguard team, and then surrounded them with love as they headed off to college. For 65 years, Eaman has been a place where neighbors can come together, socialize and build a community.. a community that somewhere along the way starts to feel like family.
This 65th Anniversary party is FREE to attend and donations are encouraged. As we move into another season and battle rising operating costs and limited volunteers, we need your help to ensure that our pool continues to serve this community for many years to come. Please plan to join us on May 22, 2021 from 5-7pm. RSVP by May 18, 2021 by emails us at EamanParkPool@gmail.com. Please note that this is an adults only event.
